I am sorry I only had one night to visit this beautiful resort property. The hotel is nice and has so many amenities-too many to list. The beds were extremely comfortable and the towels were thick and absorbant. So many hotels offer thread bare towels and 180 count sheets so the extra plush linens add so much to a good... More

We booked two nights in one of the cottages. We came primarily to fish and relax. The cottage was very clean and peaceful and the lake was beautiful. We had a great time and can not wait to come back!

We were passing through and booked two nights. At first glance the park is pretty. Then we got to the campsites. * Campground asphalt roads are crumbling as are campsite pads. * Erosion has taken its toll throughout, making deep chasm drop-offs all around the roads and RV pads, which are narrow to begin with. Drop offs on each side... More

There are definitely issues at the campground that need to be addressed. We are currently seeking long term solutions to many of these same issues. The sites are small as they were designed in a different area when the typical camping rig was much smaller. We do have a few sites that lend well larger campers. Additional staffing will be...

My wife and I experienced the Eagle Watch Luncheon Tour on Sat Jan 31st. It was a 2 hour tour up and down Kentucky Lake on a two story luxury yacht. We saw about 20 eagles on our trip, while the morning boat trip saw 68 eagles. The catered lunch was great. KenLake lodge has one of the most skilled... More

We came to the area specifically for the Eagle Watch weekend. Bald eagles live in this area, some year round, some seasonally. The best time for viewing is in the winter time when there are a maximum number of birds and there are no leaves on the trees so their nests are easier to spot. There is an orientation on... More

Thank you for your recent stay and review of our Eagle’s weekend. You made a very good point regarding the proximity of the birds to the boat. They are wild and free and don’t always cooperate so it is a good idea to have good optics. However, I have seen them get so close you would think that they were... More

We were out on business but a mini family vacation at the same time. We had a 3 bedroom 2 bath cabin. Lots of room inside. The kitchen was fully equipped plus 2 grills outside. We stayed 3 days and had no complaints. The staff at the lodge was friendly and helpful. Hopping to go back this spring for a... More

Recently we made a trip to the Kenlake resort to meet another couple and planned to spend a weekend. We had never been to the area so we relied on our friends recommendations and allowed them to make the reservations.

We only needed someplace to camp for one night. It is a nice park with sites located on or very near the lake. Very nice, clean park and the surrounding areas are beautiful and rich with history. Having said that, I have to mention that the campsites are narrow and raised off the surrounding ground from being paved over numerous... More
